Refurbished equipment

I'm on the equipment search for Gracie. We've decided to adapt her current wheelchair so that it actually works for her and NOT pursue power wheelchair at this time. This plan seems more practical for our first time moving to Uganda! But I also need to get her a light weight stroller with a seating/positioning system - this can get expensive, so I'm looking into refurbished equipment.

If anyone has used the Special Tomatos MPS (Multipositioning system), let me know your thoughts on it! It would be very useful to have an all-in-one system that can be used in the house, in a restaurant or school (on a regular chair), in the car as her carseat, and as a stroller.

Here are some links to useful sites regarding refurbished equipment in New England. If you know of others, please comment! Thanks!
